Ne-Yo helps open tech world to young people of color

“I just always want to be pushing part of whatever is pushing us forward as a society. And in that, this technology is changing the world for literally everybody on it. Every second, it’s changing for everybody. Everybody should have access to it,” Ne-Yo told Associated Press.

Ne-Yo hopes to infuse diversity into the tech world

“The school is important to me because it allows access to this technology education, to be frankly honest, to people that it wasn’t accessible to before,” Ne-Yo told the Associated Press. “You know minorities, people of color, women, people that are not represented as fully in the tech space as they perhaps should be or could be.”

La academia donde los estudiantes pagan solo cuando consiguen trabajo con salario de $3 millones o más

Holberton School no cobra por adelantado a sus estudiantes. Gracias a su modelo de Acuerdo de Ingreso Compartido no pagan el costo de su educación durante el tiempo de formación. Así, en lugar de pagar una matrícula tradicional, el estudiante ayuda a la sostenibilidad de la academia contribuyendo con el 17% de su salario mensual durante 42 meses, una vez graduado y cuente con ingresos de más de 3 millones mensuales.

However, Machine Learning on Code is actually a field of research that is just starting to materialize into enterprise products. One of the pioneers of movement is a company called source{d}, which is building a series of open source projects turning code into actionable data and training machine learning models to help developers respect technical guidelines.
